Moor Carter & Jane Kindred

Moor Carter ca 1680 – 1740 | parents
& ca 1713 Jane Kindred ca 1690/1700 – 1764 | parents
of Isle of Wight County, VA & Bertie County, NC

This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!

Moore Carter is a younger son of Thomas Carter ca 1652 – 1810 and his wife Magdalene Moore daughter of George Moore says Barry Hayes based on his analysis of the Isle of Wight records. Moore Carter married ca 1715 Jane Kindred.

Jane Kindred was the daughter of John Kindred jr ca 1660 – 1703 and his wife Catherine. Catherine had married by 1704 William Peacock who died in 1722.

  1. I am interested in finding proof of the marriage of William Taylor and Winnifred Carter,( daughter of Kindred Carter .). Some sites have her married to
    Rueben Taylor.
    Thanks < Dorothy

  2. Hi,

    Do you have any “proof” that Narcissa Carter Brooks is Pheba and Jessie Carter’s daughter? I have been searching for proof for years with no success. I believe the relationship is true but have been unable to locate documented proof.



    1. Check with Linda Jensen on this. Lots of “proof’s” were destroyed in fires — both Court Houses and private homes.
      Sometimes, we have to settle for circmstansible evidence until we are proven incorrect. Keep your eyes peeled as you study the records.
      Sometimes our proof was misfiled in the records. Good luck.
